"I deplore and condemn the vicious attacks perpetrated in New Delhi this weekend, which left 21 innocent people dead and nearly 100 wounded.  These cowardly acts of mass murder are a stark reminder that India continues to suffer from the scourge of terrorism on a scale few other nations can imagine.  I urge all countries to cooperate with Indian authorities in tracking down the perpetrators of this outrage.  My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families," Obama said in a statement.
